Fellow moms often ask for tips on feeding picky eaters and I frequently respond with “Get them in the kitchen!” It’s true – the more involved your kids are in the process of preparing the food, the more involved they will be during the consumption of food. Hands down.

Want to know another secret weapon for getting little ones to eat the rainbow? SAY CHEESE! Studies show that produce intake is often boosted when foods are paired with irresistible cheesy goodness. So get the kids involved starting at the grocery store by letting them pick out their favorite fruits and cheeses then bring them in the kitchen and let them get to work!

Prep your fruit skewers ahead of time then grab from the refrigerator throughout the week while packing lunches or for after school snacking. The balanced combination of protein, healthy carbs, calcium and other nutrients is ideal for giving little ones long lasting energy to get them through their day.

        Yes, about 7 years ago. Same family – three kids. Basically raised them from birth until I stopped. The youngest is my god-daughter, and we have become good friends with the family.
